RE: daughter-father, linked
Okay, thanks for replying. If I get there and find such a pile, and her stone within, I'll let you know. I just now noticed on your profile that Ellison's were 3rd in line of lineages of yourinterest. So, the Milligan's might be related to you too. (More likely in-laws though).

Thank you, Miss Edith (I liked the fellow below, Jeff's, his way of addressing you),

Thanks for linking my ancestors to one another. Since you've been to and created some memorials from First Scots Presbyterian in Charleston, do you recall if they had a pile of broken and/or displaced monuments in which I might could rummage through and find Joseph's wife Mary's gravestone? Charleston's not far out of the way when I visit family in Florida.
Thanks again,
~Mike

Request for transfer
Miss Edith,
Would you consider transferring the memorial Clarissa "Clara" Walton Adger Bowen 20811782 to me? I have a special interest in her because I have a book that was hers and it was passed down from my grandmother to my mother and now to me. If you would rather keep her memorial that is fine too. Thank you for your consideration ma'am.

RE: Mary McClendon and Ella Coley
HOW TO READ A DETERIORATING STONE:
Please....Never use chalk, flour, powder on a stone. Spray water may help, sometimes in combination with a soft toothbrush. Sometimes I put the toothbrush into the dirt beside the stone, using the dirt like nature's ink, and rub the toothbrush (dirt and all) across the inscription/dates. Too much water and you get nothing.

Another option is to use aluminum foil on the stone surface. Enough foil to wrap around the corners of the stone. Use soft toothbrush to brush across the foil and get an impression of what's on the stone. Remove the foil and take it to a shaded place to be able to read the impression on the foil.

Sometimes I am lucky enough to find the information I need on ancestry, maybe a birth or death certificate, sometimes an obit that gives date information or names spouse/parents, etc

RE: Mary McClendon and Ella Coley
oh no someone chalked the stone.. this deteriorates the stone surface and shortens the life of the stone.
